BEST HEALTH FOOD STORE

BIG CAR­ROT 348 Dan­forth, 416-466-2129 Maybe it’s the inspiring co-op struc­ture or the fact that it helped de­velop the first and only nat­u­ral mall in the city, Car­rot Com­mon, whose court­yard

dou­bles as a great place to peo­ple­watch or get a 10-minute shi­atsu treat­ment un­der the trees. Maybe it’s the amaz­ing se­lec­tion of or­ganic pro­duce, the aisles of GMO- and re­fined-sweet­ener-free foods. Or the fact that it’s out-and-out banned those in­gre­di­ents, plus about a dozen more. Did we men­tion that the sup­ple­ment and body care sec­tions are so big and boun­ti­ful, they ba­si­cally have their own sep­a­rate stores within the Com­mon (where su­per-knowl­edge­able staff dole out ad­vice to boot)? If any lo­cally owned health store can steal cus­tomers away from cor­po­rate mega-gro­cers and keep ’em, it’s this one, and we love ’em for it.
